Typical Examiner hyperbole. "Gains traction" in reality translates to "another whack job floating the same old **** that hundreds of other whack jobs in the past 100 years have proposed."

Ya a six state proposal is quite silly and obviously would never actually pass congress. A two or state proposal is more realistic than this ridiculous 6 state proposal.

I think it makes more sense to have three states: Southern CA, Silicon Valley, and Proper CA. Both Southern CA and Silicon Valley are democratic and Proper CA is republican.

The only thing this will be is a feeding frenzy for So Cal lawyers, Nor Cal wasteoids, and Bay Area sweatpant Facebook activists with no boots on the ground.

I happen to agree with you. This comes up every few years but in reality there is less than a 1% chance something like this will happen...

I said it before and I'll say it again. California WILL be broken up at some point. It's only a matter of when, not if. It could be this proposal or another. That's largely beside the point. True, there have been numerous token attempts at doing this over the years, but now I really do think "this time it's different" and that there's enough dysfunction, discord, anger, and enough people who have had enough that convinces me it's only a matter of time. The momentum is definitely growing. And as far as I'm concerned, the people that say "It can't happen/it's a whack job idea/only losers would support this/etc" are EXACTLY the reason it WILL happen. It's human nature at it's finest: when there are that many people who feel disenfranchised, what's the best way to motivate them? Yup. It's to tell them "it can't be done".
